It's the timeless, classic tale: girl-meets-recession, recession-forces-girl-to-go-to-Iraq. I Have Iraq in My Shoe follows the author out of her comfort zone and into the Middle East. Taking the wit of Jen Lancaster and the fun of Sophie Kinsella and moving it to the desert, this is the story of a single, fashion-obsessed American female who finds herself metaphorically strapping on a Kevlar caftan to work in Iraq for a year. Irreverent and hilarious, saucy and smart, it's a tale of lessons

It is easy to get caught up in Tim Kenny’s rich stories about Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo, the U.S., and elsewhere. Behind every story about his experiences are drive and perseverance--often exhibited during turbulent times in foreign lands--that give substance to the stories. I admire the way he shows the unfamiliar, but ultimately it is the way he makes me experience the familiar in a different way that I find most rewarding. I am pulled in by the stories about foreign countries, yet more

But the old religion survived beneath the facade and priests danced naked on the beach beneath the full moon. The village pulsated with

This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact.
